I've used it on different surfaces. My main purpose for getting this is to vacuum the stairs. It works really well for that. The main unit is very light in weight and it is very easy to use it on the stairs. I could not believe I almost got the chamber half filled after 14 steps of 4.5' wide stairs. The airbrush attachment performed very well.
On hardwood floor, the floor attachment works fine and the suction is good. The floor attachment does not work very well on carpet though. First, it does not have a rotation brush to help lifting up dust. Second, the attachment tilted upward from time to time. I guess I may need to lubricate the hinge a little bit with silicone spray.
In summary, it works very well for the main purpose I got this vacuum for, but it may not replace my old upright vacuum for carpet surface.

|milamoya||I bought this yesterday at Costco for $80 plus tax in store (Ohio-Strongsville). I was going to post it, but see you have a thread already started. As far as I can tell this is an excellent price because this one INCLUDES THE WHEEL BASE AND BARE FLOOR ATTACHMENT as well as other attachments. If you read reviews on Amazon, many people complained because it did not include a wheel base, and the floor attachment was available only as a $20 option. I saw online prices as high as $140!! without the floor attachment. I've only used this for one day but it has great suction and is very portable and easy to use. So far so good. And if it should present any problems, you can't beat the Costco return policy. I think this is a very good price and I am repping you for getting it up there. Thanks. This is a perfect size for auto, stairs, tight spaces, etc. It comes with a manufactures 3 yr waranty, and reviews indicated customer service has been good when needed.|

Shark Lift-Around Canister Vacuum LA400 with accessories $79.99 at Costco B&M
I have been keeping an eye on this vacuum at Costco for a while as the reviews look excellent online. The regular price is $99.99 which is $20 cheaper than Amazon and other vendors. Right now, they have an instant rebate of $20 at Costco B&M through 4/15 making it $79.99 plus tax. It is still $99.99 plus $9.99S/H at Costco.com though .
For reviews, look at Amazon for the same package model or the vacuum alone model at Rakuten , Target or Amazon . It got 4.5 stars almost everywhere. The LA400 model is a complete package with the wheeled base and multiple attachments. See Costco.com or the the official product site for more info.
